Hipping Hall: A Historic Gem Reimagined by HPA Architects Now Up for Sale
Nestled in the picturesque Lune Valley near Kirkby Lonsdale, Hipping Hall is not just a building; it’s a piece of history that has been lovingly restored and expanded by HPA Architects over the last decade. This charming estate, which dates back to the 15th century, has undergone a remarkable transformation under the watchful eye of HPA Architects, and it’s now seeking a new owner to continue its legacy. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the fascinating journey of Hipping Hall, its recent refurbishments, and its potential as it enters the real estate market.
Hipping Hall has a storied past, with its doors first opening as a restaurant with rooms in 2005 under the Wildsmith portfolio. Its historical significance and stunning surroundings make it a captivating destination for travellers exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District national parks. The site exudes charm and character, and its allure has only grown over the years.
A decade of transformation.
Over the last ten years, HPA Architects has been at the helm of a series of meticulous extensions and refurbishments, breathing new life into this historic gem. The most recent addition was the conversion of a former stables building into five new bedrooms, expanding the capacity by an impressive 50 percent. This expansion not only enhances the guest experience but also positions Hipping Hall to cater to larger weddings and corporate events.
Furthermore, the project extended beyond the interiors. Extensive landscaping of the grounds was undertaken to seamlessly integrate the new building with the existing hotel, ensuring that visitors can fully appreciate the beauty of the surroundings. The result is a harmonious blend of old-world charm and modern amenities, offering guests an unforgettable experience.
Today, Hipping Hall boasts 15 guest rooms spread across three distinct buildings: the main house, the cottage, and the newly completed stable rooms. Each space is thoughtfully designed, offering guests a taste of luxury amidst a historic backdrop. The combination of cozy interiors and stunning vistas creates a unique atmosphere that’s perfect for both relaxation and celebration.
As Hipping Hall goes up for sale, it represents an incredible opportunity for a new owner to take the reins of this magnificent property. The groundwork has been laid by HPA Architects, and the potential for this historic building is boundless. With its prime location and year-round appeal to tourists, Hipping Hall is primed to continue offering world-class hospitality and experiences to its future guests.
In the words of Andrew Wildsmith, “Hipping Hall still holds so much potential,” and we couldn’t agree more. As the sun sets on one chapter of its history, we eagerly await the next, as Hipping Hall finds its new steward to carry on its legacy.
